Robbers attack, injure actress Kemi Afolabi in Lagos traffic
Actress Kemi Afolabi has recounted how she was attacked by traffic robbers, injured and also vandalized her car, last night.
According to her, the incidence happened in Arepo, an outskirt town in Lagos, where she went to film.
In a video she shared on Instagram on Wednesday, she expressed how shocked and traumatised she is, while lamenting the highly poor insecurity state in Nigeria which has become a norm.
She however expressed her gratitude to God because it could been be worse!
“I am in a state of shock! Traumatized!!
I haven’t closed my eyes to sleep since yesterday.
I also experienced the highly poor insecurity state in Nigeria which has become a norm. No matter how much we scream and cry it always falls on deaf ears of those who govern us even when death is involved.
My driver and I were attacked by armed robbers at Arepo where I went to film while in traffic on our way back home yesterday, They broke my windscreens, left my whole body with wounds and skin in pains because of the impact of the shattered glass which was forcefully broken while I was in the car, my arm was cut with cutlass, they took my phones, belongings and ran off! Sadly my driver also took a hit to his head.
Still I am thankful because it could be worse!
However, this is nothing compared to what I’ve been through in recent times.
No matter what may come my way, I will forever be grateful to God for preserving my life.
